But over all, the Note feels like a laundry-list tablet. It has a higher feature count than any other tablet, but those features are stuffed into a machine with less coherence than any other tablet.
Clearly, Samsung had no Steve Jobs on hand to veto anything. Features that don’t work well are mixed in with the winners; features you’ll never use are jammed in with the useful ones. (Why on earth have the all-important, ever-present Android buttons — Back, Home, App Switcher — now been joined by a fourth one that takes screenshots? Does Samsung think people take screenshots as often as they go to the Home screen?)"
sigh… Those who do not know history’s mistakes are doomed to repeat them
